Understanding Human Design with Jenna Zoe

So, what is human design?

Human design is a New Age-inspired practice. Its proponents describe it as a holistic self-knowledge system. Essentially, it can help you have a deeper understanding of yourself and how you interact with the world around you. Your birth date, time and location can give you your unique human design chart, which can guide you in decision-making, communication and how you interact with others.  

Jenna Zoe is a Leading Expert in Human Design and recently spoke with us on Better Together with Maria about the different human designs and what that means for living your most fulfilling life. She presents human design with kindness and acceptance, so people can understand how they can best function. Knowing your energy type and how your intuition works, will naturally lead you to living according to all other categories of your design chart. Jenna explained them to us during our interview, so we wanted to share them with you!

The 5 Human Design Energy Types:


1. Manifestor

Manifestors are the kind of people who get the urge to try something and then once they try it, they leave it alone. Once they’ve gotten to a certain point of trying, they check out and leave it for a while. One minute they’re at 200%, and then the next they’re down to 20%. Very spontaneous and brave to try things, make people feel inclined to follow them. 


2. Generator 

Generators are much slower at picking things up and really think it over more before putting the energy and time into it. Generators tend to be more one track with their passions and tend to stick with what they know well and can do well. Generators give off this feeling of interest to others since they know how to do one thing very well.


3. Manifesting Generator

Manifesting Generators are ruled by their God, so if you’re not interested in doing something, that is actually the universe’s way of saying you shouldn’t be doing that. Manifesting Generators are hyper capable, but that doesn’t mean they should be doing everything. Just because you can wear all the hats doesn’t mean you should all the time! Manifesting generators make others feel limitless and show others that there are many possibilities of what they can do.


4. Projector 

Projectors are a bit lower on the scale than Manifestors, Generators and Manifesting Generators. They are people who are here to see how things can be done in a better way. They are not as much about doing or trying new things, but more about observing and seeing how things can be better. They’re supposed to be seeing and figuring things out.


5. Reflector 

Reflectors are only 1% of the population and they are people who are supposed to sit in their own soul and reflect. Sometimes with reflectors, others can interact with them and see their own selves so clearly.
